Bouncy boy Teddy is a young, energetic, sweet natured boy – the joker of the pack

Abandoned and all alone, little Teddy was found in a field at 6 weeks old with a bowl of green slime and a running hosepipe that was the only thing keeping him alive.

Such a handsome lad – Teddy

A Turkish man had originally contacted rescue charity AA Ovacik and asked if they would look after a puppy for him temporarily as he had to rush away for personal reasons during Covid. He had been let down by a friend and was desperate for help. The man disappeared and they had to search for the puppy with no help. When they eventually found the pup half way up a mountain, they were devastated to find the puppy terrified and alone.

Thankfully, a local gardener had thought to leave running water or the puppy would have died. The man never returned and said he no longer wanted the dog. AA Ovacik contacted AFOT and asked if we could take the puppy on as there was no future for him in Turkey.

How can anyone resist that face!

Teddy has just turned one year old and is a bundle of fun. He currently weighs 18kg and is a small/medium cross-breed dog with a gorgeous short haired tan coloured coat.

Dinner time and all attention is on his food bowl

He is so bouncy, loving and friendly and will make a great family dog. He loves children.

Teddy did live with a cat for a short period of time when in foster care, but this was when he was much younger and he has yet to be cat tested again. Teddy would be ideal to live with another dog as he loves to play and in fact his favorite game is getting the other dogs to chase him around the garden!

Teddy loves to play

Teddy loves his food and will go around the other bowls to see if the others have left anything. He walks on a lead but being so young his training is a work in progress and will need to be continued. But he is eager to learn and being so food motivated, training should be relatively easy and fun. Teddy just thinks every day is a party. He is such a character and you can’t help but love him.

Teddy loves stimulation and play

Being so young and full of energy, Teddy will need someone who can give him lots of exercise and keep him stimulated. If you think that could be you then please check out what’s involved in taking on one of our rescue dogs by clicking this link and reading our Dog Adoption Policy guidelines.

A home check is always made and while there is no adoption fee required, we do ask for a voluntary donation to help towards our costs.
